What is Estrogen Replacement Therapy?
Estrogen plays an important role in a woman’s health. As we get older, our estrogen levels decrease. Having less estrogen means that you will experience a range of symptoms, many of which affect your physical and emotional well-being. At North Cypress Women’s Center, you will receive safe and effective estrogen replacement therapy to help you manage your symptoms and maintain a high quality of life.
Estrogen Replacement Therapy Benefits
Dr. Imtiaz recommends estrogen replacement therapy for women during and after menopause. The treatment helps manage:
- Vaginal dryness
- Decreased libido
- Reduced bone density (osteoporosis)
- Mood changes
- Reduced mental clarity
- Menstrual migraine headaches
What Affects Estrogen Levels?
The most common cause of decreased estrogen levels is menopause, but your estrogen levels are also affected by pregnancy, hysterectomy, medications and certain medical conditions. Men also have estrogen in their bodies, although not at the same levels as women. Aging is the most common influence on a man’s estrogen levels.
How is Estrogen Replacement Therapy Administered?
Dr. Imtiaz recommends bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women and men who would benefit from estrogen replacement therapy. The hormones may be administered via BioTE® hormone pellet implants.
Estrogen Replacement Therapy Preparation
In order to determine an accurate diagnosis, Dr. Imtiaz will ask questions about your symptoms. You may want to keep a diary of any changes to your physical, emotional and mental well-being. You should note concerns even if you believe that the symptoms are not related to estrogen levels.
Estrogen Replacement Therapy Recovery
The estrogen levels in your body decreased gradually. Similarly, it will take some time to raise the amount of estrogen in your body. We recommend that you be patient with the treatment process. Your symptoms will gradually disappear once you and Dr. Imtiaz identify the most effective estrogen replacement therapy combination for your body.
